Considering when my AVs are disbanded in port sit there with 100% search training (typical until I start squeezing in some ASW) and only some of the pilots train, I believe they DO suffer a port penalty in this case. When my AVs are in an active fleet (assigned a TF), but parked in port, I have them also on 100% training. At this time they gain more fatigue and more pilots train. In short, my experiences say that AVs use their planes to their fullest extent while parked in port, assigned to a TF. I answered this question quite a few posts up (post 4). However, my experience is still limited with the game. I am only reporting the behavior I have noticed to this point, based on my settings.
